Guest Speaker: Susan Conroy
Susan Conroy is an author, public speaker and TV host. Susan first journeyed to India while a student at Dartmouth College after being inspired by Mother Teresa’s efforts there on behalf of the “poorest of the poor”. Susan states that “nothing I witnessed in my upbringing prepared me for the poverty of Calcutta” and she speaks of her “joy in working with orphans, the sick and the dying” as she learned from Mother Teresa that “joy is half the gift you bring.”
Susan developed an 11-year friendship with Mother Teresa and her experiences are chronicled in her 1st book, Mother Teresa’s Lessons of Love & Secrets of Sanctity, published in 2003, written with Mother Teresa’s own blessing and approval. She has authored several other books including her latest published in 2016 titled: Praying with Mother Teresa. Susan has hosted a mini-series on EWTN called “Speaking of Saints”. She has traveled across the US speaking of her experiences, sharing her faith and encouraging joy-filled service to those in need of mercy.
“I am praying for you that in you and through your works God be glorified.”
**Susan will sell her books before and after the meal.**
Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts of women, free of distraction, it is respectfully requested that young children not be in attendance. Also please be aware that subject matter may not be suitable for children.
*PLEASE NOTE: This breakfast has limited seating available and tickets will sell fast!
